This Week’s Highlights

Speaker: Ms. Monica Dierks, Cultural Differences

Rotarian Monica is the head of German Phoenix Information Consulting (Beijing) Ltd. Monica travels between China and Europe, bridging gaps between companies or people of China and European countries, helping them better understand each other. She insists speaking Chinese when she is in China, and she loves trying new things. After all, speaking the local language is extremely helpful. However, cultural interaction is about much more than language skills. It is also about adapting to the culture.

Monica is the author of a book called “Cultural Differences Between East and West”  (东西方文化差异). Monica talked about three things: 1. What’s culture? 2. What’s intercultural communication? Who can navigate us through the cultural iceberg?
